Clinton Stumps for Bennet in Colorado

Former President Bill Clinton is pleading with Colorado Democrats to stick with Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet, saying that a vote for Republicans would return the nation to dangerous times.

About 2,000 people packed a high school gym Monday in northeast Denver to hear Clinton speak in a rally that harkened back to the past as he stumped for Bennet. The former president is touring the nation whipping up support for vulnerable Democrats.

In Colorado, Clinton told Democrats that Republican Ken Buck wants voters to think only about their anger at the current economy. Clinton insisted Republicans are to blame for the current problems and shouldn't be returned to office.

You might recall that during the U.S. Senate primary for Democrats, Clinton actually put his support behind Bennet's opponent, Andrew Romanoff. In reaction to the new endorsement, Ken Buck's campaign sent out this statement:

"Former Presidents are always welcome in Colorado. We hope Pres.
Clinton's second endorsement in this Senate race is just as successful as his first."

Clinton's rally came the same day early voting began in Colorado.

    Charlie, I emailed him too, and got a "I'm so good" email back. Then I complained about the tv commercials, got an email back praising him, and asking for a donation!

    Obviously didn't expect a large crowd if they only got a high school gym.

    One of Bennett's anti-Buck ads states "you don't learn ethics in Washington". So true! Charlie Rangel, Barney Frank, John Murtha, Maxine Waters, Blumenthal......And Bill Clinton campaigned for Rangel, Frank and Blumenthal!

    Nath you are right on in your assessment. I tried calling, emailing his office. Got no where when I voiced my objection to the Health Care bill. Oh, I did get a form letter from him teling me how hard he was working for us to pass the Health care bill!

    Bill Clinton, a man with a dark ethical and moral past cannot help a man who went to Washington by appointment and on a mission to help pass an agenda destructive to everything America stands for. Anyone who has contacted any of Bennet's offices in opposition to any of the bills rammed through Congress since he became Senator knows he doe's not represent the State of Colorado or Colorado's citizens. His loyalty is with the Progressive radicals now in power in Washington. That loyalty will not change if elected to a full term and your voice will fall on deaf ears when you contact his office.
